At the inception of the Nashville Predators' franchise in 1997, we not only made a commitment to develop a successful hockey team and organization, but also believed and committed to fulfilling a recognized responsibility to play an important role in our home community.
Thus, the Nashville Predators Foundation was created, a 501 (c)(3) charity organization devoted to funneling the excitement of professional sports towards the needs of this community. Since its establishment, the Nashville Predators Foundation has indeed made a significant impact on the Middle Tennessee community.
Through the support of you, the fans, at various fundraising events held throughout the year, the Foundation is able to award several hundred thousands of dollars in grants to Nashville and Middle Tennessee area charities and community service organizations.

In addition, through the Give and Go Program, the Foundation has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars' worth of Predators tickets to local charity organizations. If you have an outstanding volunteer, nominate them here.
The Nashville Predators Foundation also works to give back to the community by helping at events and volunteer opportunities. The Nashville Predators organization is committed to serving 6,000 hours of community service to the Nashville community each year through the Hearts of Gold program. Tasks can range from reading to students to painting buildings and everything in between.

While we look forward to hoisting the Stanley Cup on the ice someday, we already feel the pride of a championship every time the work of the Foundation helps fund playgrounds, construct street hockey rinks for youth centers, build homes or even allow youngsters to attend their first professional sports event.
